Rush's Geddy Lee Announces North American Book Tour Dates

Ahead of the release of his forthcoming memoir, award-winning Canadian musician Geddy Lee has announced a North American book tour, titled, “My Effin’ Life In Conversation.”

The Rush singer/bassist’s memoir, “My Effin’ Life,” is due for release on November 14 on Harper Collins.

Produced by Live Nation, the 14-city tour kicks off on November 13 at The Beacon Theatre in New York, making stops across North America in Boston, San Francisco, Chicago and more before wrapping up in Toronto at Massey Hall on December 7.

After the curtain rises for each show, Lee will give his fans a peek into the very fabric of his life: from a deep reflection of his family and childhood, to a dive into the history of Rush; from the determined pursuit of music, to the personal memories with his life-long friends and bandmates Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart.

Joined on stage by a special guest interviewer, Lee will be reading key passages from his book. He will then share thoughts and stories taken from his experience. Fans will then have the chance to participate in a special Q&A, with Lee answering their questions directly.

“Writing this book has meant spending so much time living in the past,” said Lee. “I’ve never lived my life looking anywhere but forward, which is why I resisted doing this kind of thing for so long. Being in a band all those years was reassuring because it was an ongoing thing. It felt like it was forever.”

“There was always unfinished business: the next record, the next set design, the next tour. It’s been the theme of my life,” he continued. “But you need a lot more determination to proceed in the world of music without the comfort of your bandmates, and I can only hope that finishing this book will release me to return to what I do and love best”.

General sale of tickets for the tour will begin Friday at 1 0am local time at Every ticket purchased includes a copy of “Geddy Lee My Effin’ Life,” which will be provided to the ticketholder upon entry into the venue. There is a 4 ticket limit per person.
